Stress at work is common even in the best workplaces. A 2015 Stress and Well-being survey by the Australian Psychological Society found a trending increase in workplace stress and anxiety, with 45% of Australians complaining of work-related stress (Martin, 2018, p.38). The causes are varied:

  • long working hours or unreasonable performance expectations
  • the physical environment
  • organisational practices, such as a lack of control over one's work, poor communication, or a lack of clarity about roles and responsibilities
  • changes at work, resulting in insecurity, high turnover, or stifled opportunity for promotion
  • new job demands (for which the worker is not skilled)
  • workplace relationships, including bullying, office politics, conflict, or competition
  • ethical challenges
  • external stressors like changing regulations or economic conditions over which the workplace has no control
  • a toxic work environment (Martin, 2018, p.37-38).
